Since 2014, TRNK has been bringing us carefully sourced home furnishings from designers around the world. Now TRNK is dipping their toes into the furniture design waters, and creating a collection of their own. The new TRNK Truss Collection is a contemporary update on iconic designs of the past.

The staple of any living room is the seating, and TRNK’s Truss line is trendy and timeless, elegant and welcoming. These are investment pieces that you can build a room around, allowing you to easily update the look of your space simply by changing out the surrounding decor. Thoughtfully designed, the Truss line was created with the modern home in mind: it is a line that is durable, stylish, and comfortable.

While their extensive collection of home decor products sourced from around the world is what put TRNK on the map, the Truss line is something altogether new. A passion project for co-founders and designers Tariq Dixon and Nick Nemechek, the collection is made right here in America. Inspired by the classic home furnishings they already offer, the duo developed four seating pieces that fit perfectly with every home decor style, from the contemporary to the minimalist to the urban industrial. Their main goal for the Truss line was to create pieces that are elegant yet practical and their extensive knowledge of furniture and customer needs allowed them to do just that.

Style wasn’t the only concern when developing their new line. Tariq and Nick invested countless hours into making sure the pieces are as comfortable as they are stylish. Special high-resilience foam was used for the cushions, along with a tempered steel S-spring support system to ensure maximum durability and “loungey” comfort.

The Truss collection is made to order, allowing you to customize it to fit your home. You can choose from a variety of color options in fabric, aniline leather, or a fabric and leather combination, to create your own unique sofa, armchair, ottoman, or two-seater bench. Ranging in price from $1,150 to $4,400, each piece is handmade and ships in 6 – 8 weeks. As an added bonus, to celebrate the launch of their first collection, TRNK is offering free delivery on Truss orders placed before July 14th.

The Sexy, Sleek Look of a Bugatti is Now Available for Your Home
Bugatti Luxury Living Group

Bugatti. The name rolls off the tongue with the same smoothness of the automaker’s sleek cars. While most will never get the chance to own a Chiron, you now have the opportunity to have a Bugatti in your living room. The iconic curves have been reimagined into a new line of home goods as part of Bugatti’s 110th-anniversary celebration.

To some, it may seem creating a home collection is an odd way to celebrate a milestone anniversary, but the Bugatti family started their legacy with furniture, not cars. The Cobra Chair is the hallmark piece from the new Bugatti Home Collection and it is a tribute to Carlo Bugatti, father of Ettore, the founder of the car company. Carlo was an interior designer and created the Cobra Chair in 1902. The relaunch of this iconic piece comes with some variations from the original, including a “110 Ans Bugatti” logo embroidered onto the chair back. Only 110 of these chairs will be available and they come in a range of bold colors.

Mad Lab’s Utopia Collection Reimagines Renaissance Architecture as Handsome Home Decor
mad lab utopia collection antonio serrano madlab 1

Everyone knows that a big part of Italy’s charm is the beautiful Renaissance architecture. The 15th century was all about striving for perfection in all aspects of life, which in turn would create the “perfect city.” Renaissance architecture achieved this perceived perfection by looking back to the Greek and Roman times and incorporating symmetry, math, proportion, and order. The results were visually appealing, ornate buildings (like St. Peter’s Basilica). It’s this idea of architectural perfection that influenced a new line of housewares from Mad Lab.

The Utopia Collection is set of serving pieces disguised as a scaled-down city. Consisting of three jars, two trays, a serving platter, and a fruit bowl, the line is a modern day interpretation of the Renaissance style. The pieces are made from carefully carved wood and showcase architectural shapes important to the style of the time, including the arch and spire. The three jars take on iconic Renaissance building shapes, the serving trays and platter represent classic Italian courtyards, and the fruit bowl is a reimagining of the palazzo.

Trash to Treasure: Snohetta’s New S-1500 Chair is Made From Fish-Farming Waste

We all know plastic is bad for the environment. It’s clogging our oceans, killing wildlife, and crowding landfills. But plastic is in every aspect of our lives, from the moment we wake up in the morning until we go to bed at night. So, while initiatives, like banning one-time-use plastic bags or removing plastic straws from restaurants, are a good effort, there also needs to be a solution for reusing the plastic already out there. Determined to reduce the need for “virgin” plastic, design powerhouse Snøhetta has been working for over two years to develop a stylish solution.

Focusing on the plastic waste that comes from the fish farming industry in northern Norway, Snøhetta found a way to reuse, and reshape, the material into a stylish new chair. Working with furniture manufacturer Nordic Comfort Products, they’ve developed the S-1500 chair.
